KitGuru says: Although not much has changed from the HD60 S+, we now have VRR support and can record 4K/30 (with limitations) – and as this is the same price as the HD60s+, it will simply replace it in the line-up. If you're new to streaming the HD60X is worth buying, but if you already have the HD60 S+, unless you really need those new features (VRR and 4K 30 recording) then you might want to wait for Elgato's future offerings.
